Q: Why is it so hard to find pocket watches in China?

I've searched everywhere and it's impossible. I did find the cheap junk and the fake Swiss ones which are magnified, but what about the real quality ones? Don't the Chinese like pocket watches?

They probably think it is too inconvenient to pull it out of your pocket. Also, you can't show it off like an expensive wristwatch, right?

zengpingjiang:

I want to have a watch, but personally I think table is a kind of decoration, so I'll choose the table wear in the hand, pocket watch put pocket really more troublesome, if use pocket watch and see no difference between mobile phone time.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
